The Bravery sound so much like the younger U2...

It's eerie almost...

They look like a pretty exciting band. There are a lot of bands around at the moment that are over-hyped in my view but the Bravery are interesting, they have an edge to them.

They remind me of early U2 except with more nipples.

They do sound a bit like early U2! Particularly the singer. That "No Brakes" song is pretty good! I might even pick up their album when it's released...

Good God...I'm listening to the full album at NME, and it's actually amazing how much the singer sounds like young Bono. If The Bravery were to ever give "Boy" a try, they'd sound identical, at least in terms of vocals.

oh gods no, a real victory (?) for style over substance.

(And why is it that every new band now is 'reminiscent of early U2'?)

Err, can only see the resemblance to early U2 in the allovertheplace vocals and the punky rhythms. There's just too much synth and slick production in there, it's like Franz Ferdinand Instant Packages. Just brew and pour!

He does, though! Listen to "Give In" or "Swollen Summer". It could be 1980 Bono singing.

I heard them cover "an cat dubh" in concert... and he came pretty darn close - its was very cool... i was hoping they would record an official version though ... but id settle for an mp3 of the live song...

Cool, that must mean the band are U2 fans too!

I'm really starting to like The Bravery, based on their debut album. It's not perfect, but at least they've got spunk. I agree with financeguy - there are a lot of overhyped new bands floating around, but you might actually have to look out for these guys.

The Bravery have covered U2

http://www.nme.com/news/112228.htm

Apparently they did a version of 'The Electric Co'

it's at the bottom of the article.

I'd love to hear this as i've never heard one of these 'new wave' bands cover a U2 song.

they are a good band as well
